Our Goal: Safety
Law enforcement analytics and action meet seasoned architectural savvy and crisis communications experience to bring you the most thorough findings regarding your site’s safety and your organization’s ability to navigate danger.
Vulnerability Assessment

A Vulnerability Assessment conducted by the Soteria Group aligns a combined 46 years in law enforcement with a highly seasoned team of architects who bring deep experience in school and workplace design and infrastructure development to the evaluation process.

This professional integration of safety precaution, crisis prevention and strategic environmental thinking allows us to examine all risk factors which might impact your location and community.

As a result, our assessments are thorough, comprehensive and relevant. The Soteria Group assesses your site’s physical impediments, the psychosocial concerns you may have regarding the immediate community for which you are responsible and to whom you are liable, and the technology and behavioral risks your organization is facing.

Recommendations regarding your campus or facility, training opportunities, and what to do in case of an active shooter or other safety breach are based on a combined expertise regarding:

  • How first responders react when entering the building(s) where an active shooter might be.
  • Multi-agency communication protocols during an event.
  • Cooperation with school administrators and business owners to make their facilities as safe as possible before an incident occurs.
  • Ongoing training for faculty, students, and employees to prepare for a potential event and maximize safety should one occur.
  • Who plays critical roles in cases of crisis prevention, navigation and aftermath from amongst your administrators, boards of directors, faculty members, staff, students, employees, family members and communities across the country.
Soteria groups its information in five categories against which it conducts its assessments and recommendations. These groups are:

  1. Mitigation & Prevention
  2. Preparedness & Planning
  3. Response & Intervention
  4. Recovery
  5. Technology
  • Site visit(s) and vulnerability analysis
  • Personnel surveys/interview(s)

    (e.g. secure entries, gates, fences, equipment, cameras, locks, landscaping, etc.)
